Impressing but

isn't it a usability nightmare (as HTML page of 235 KB)? What alternative options do you see to present the contents? I'd think of a zoomable JavaScript version. Best regards --Xenwolf (talk) 10:23, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

Is it possible to make a zoomable version while keeping the possibility for web users to copy/paste elements and using the "find" function (ctrl+F) of their browser? It would be also convenient to anchor the 1/1 interval to center the screen to it from a link. Contribution (talk) 15:22, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
In other articles of limit e.g. 19-limit, only the relevant intervals are listed and an odd limit is assumed, commonly the odd number below the next prime. FloraC (talk) 00:07, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
I'd ask: is it really needed to have 9 decimal places and all the copy&paste material there. Wouldn't it be preferable to teach people how to get to the values themselves? Now I think that would have been a better headline for this discussion than the "Impressive but" I actually chose. --Xenwolf (talk) 18:36, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Purpose

I think that I really have no idea what this table can be used for. As long as this is unclear to me, it is probably not a good idea to suggest an alternative implementation. Nevertheless, from a usability point of view, I don't think it's a good idea to have a horizontal scrollbar in the browser, especially if the wiki skin is not designed for that at all. Therefore, I am withdrawing my "JavaScript initiative" for the moment. --Xenwolf (talk) 20:44, 15 May 2020 (UTC)
